Housebuilder’s Yorkshire Sites Supporting Hundreds Of Jobs

Posted 29 January 2021 by Keith Osborne

Barratt Developments has been doing a lot more than simply build homes, with numerous benefits for local communities...

Barratt Developments Yorkshire, which includes the Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes brands, has reported significant social, economic and environmental contributions to the Yorkshire communities in which it builds over the course of the last year.

In 2020, the housebuilder built 1,061 new homes across the region with a diverse variety of town and countryside developments and everything from ideal starter home apartments to large executive houses.

This activity has been supporting over 4,460 jobs through its own business and that of its suppliers and subcontractors in the process. This boost to the local housing market and construction industry was supported by an £11million investment in physical infrastructure works such as environmental and highway improvements.

As well as investing £8.1million in community infrastructure such as local schools and transport, Barratt Developments Yorkshire also made over £88,000 of charitable donations to support those in need during what was an especially challenging year for many.

As a further boost to the economy during the pandemic, Barratt Developments agreed to repay all the furlough money it claimed for staff who were unable to work during the lockdown. The housebuilder’s support also extended to the introduction of its NHS Deposit Contribution Scheme, which saw it thank a number of the region’s NHS workers by contributing a 5% deposit towards the cost of buying their new home.

2020 also saw the housebuilder reinforce its commitment to creating homes for nature as well as people. The business created 18.9 hectares of greenspace across the region, equivalent to 718 tennis courts, to help support wildlife on and around its sites. Its commitment to environmental sustainability also saw Barratt Developments recycle 97.5% of construction waste across its active developments.

Daniel Smith, managing director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire East, said: “The statistics we’re able to report from last year demonstrate the emphasis we place on supporting Yorkshire’s people, environment and economy. We were thrilled to end 2020 having made such a positive contribution to the region and are looking forward to building on these results in 2021.”

Ian Ruthven, managing director at Barratt Developments Yorkshire West, added: “As a five-star homebuilder, we're keen to ensure that we’re as sustainable as possible in everything we do across the region. We are fully committed to developing more environmentally friendly processes that take care of the communities in which we build, especially during this unprecedented time, and will continue to do so in the future.”
